Porn Stars Film Appreciative Video for Troops

(New York, NY) -- Patriotic Porn Stars usually raise more than spirits. They want to send support to the troops too. Part of the story below from Foxe News:
"Messages from professional athletes, rock stars and movie sirens have been broadcast to thank U.S. troops abroad. But now X-rated entertainers want to raise spirits as well.
Busting out of barely there outfits and grasping a disturbingly long microphone, porn actresses took turns having their messages to the troops taped at the recent Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas.
But their breathy benevolence may have been for naught.
The Armed Forces Radio and Television Services, which distributes programming to U.S. forces globally, has decided these broads won't be broadcast over its airways.
A spokesman for the military broadcast service said he has been ordered not to comment on the issue, but Scott Stein, director of marketing for Sin City Films said he is disappointed by the military's decision.
Adult entertainment has penetrated mainstream culture and should be included in broadcasts to the troops, he said.
"It's ridiculous that it's even an issue — these are Americans giving their greetings to the troops, not unlike an athlete or another actor," he said.
Stein conjured up the idea and collaborated with Adult Video News Magazine and the Erotic Network to produce the videotape.
"I remember seeing greetings to the troops and I thought, 'if there's any one industry that's aware of our freedoms living here, it's the adult film industry,' so I got a few companies involved," he said.
The porn-star greeting tape features about 30 actresses and is currently being edited to meet military broadcast service guidelines.
"We're going to go through the steps regardless and see if it's accepted," Stein said. "We just want to show our support just like any other industry."
There is no denying that gestures of support have helped boost morale. But would women who serve in uniform appreciate messages from women who work without uniforms?
